1.My husband keeps harassing me by calling/texting. He knows when the hearing dates are and he challenges me on phone that he isnt going to appear in court and I can do whatever I want. If summons are returning unanswered, how does he know the dates and details of the case I have filed.
He might be gathering information through an advocate or a reliable source who he had engaged for this purpose.
This information can be obtained by anyone, there is no restriction to it. He can get the information through ecourt website too.
2. He has missed first 3 hearings in the family court and I have always been present along with my lawyer. We have got a 4th date now in July. What will happen if he doesn't appear in court again? Till what time court will have to wait before granting me divorce?
On the next date of hearing if he fails to appear or if the summons are returned undelivered, then your lawyer must request the court to permit you to process the service of summons through substituted service and he may file a petition under order V rule 20 seeking to serve the summons through a local newspaper and the publication may be sought to be published in two languages, i.e., in English and local vernacular language too.
3. My husband worked as a recovery agent for banks so deals with a lots of court cases. Is it possible that he can influence the court or our lawyer in any way? I am worried because my lawyer doesnt talk much or explain things/next steps to me in detail.
If your lawyer is not cooperating or you are not comfortable with him/her, you may think about changing the lawyer, but see to ti that you can find no lawyer suiting to your anxiety, so better have patience.
I live in very small town of uttrakhan with my parents and 2 children and have to travel 100 KMs for hearing at a court in nearby city. Being a very small city, I am bit concerned if I am receiving proper guidance from my lawyer or not.
Your are helpless so you have to believe in your lawyer to some extent until you find any symptoms inhim to act indifferently.
